How to Use iMessage (to Annoy the Hell Out of Your Friends)

Cover your text threads in stickers with iOS 10.

Yesterday, Apple released iOS 10, the newest version of its iPhone operating system, to the public. With it, you get a brand-new iMessage full of features like stickers, built-in apps, new emoji, animated texts, and a fun little orange highlighter that lets you know which words you can replace with emoji (and then does it for you). But how do you use all those features? And specifically, how do you use them to annoy your friends?

Here are a few tips and tricks to help guide you through using the new iMessage and also expedite the process of ensuring none of your friends speak to you again. (Thank you to my very patient roommates whom I texted 700 times today and I assume haven’t changed the locks on our apartment yet.)
